Jordan Scott Accuses Stephenie Meyer of Plagiarizing Breaking Dawn

by at . Comments

While Twilight was a hit, and the buzz over New Moon is off the charts, controversy over the final two films in the Twilight Saga continues to grow.

By now, most fans are familiar with the shady decision to replace Rachelle Lefevre in Eclipse with Bryce Dallas Howard. Go read more about it and let your opinion be heard.

Now, an author is taking Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer to court for allegedly stealing ideas for Breaking Dawn.

As first reported by TMZ, Jordan Scott sent a cease and desist letter to the book's publisher, stating the fourth installment in the franchise contains a "striking and substantial similarity" to Scott's book, "The Nocturne."

Scott says her novel was published in 2006; though, strangely, we can't find it on Amazon.com.

She claims that numerous scenes in the books are eerily similar, such as (Breaking Dawn spoiler alert!)...

  • Both contain a post-wedding sex scene;
  • Both depict a scene about a woman who's sick because she's carrying a child with "evil powers;"
  • Both focus on the death of the main character's wife.

In response, Meyer's rep wrote to TMZ: "The claim that 'Breaking Dawn' by Stephenie Meyer somehow infringes on an alleged book by someone named Jordan Scott is completely without merit. Neither Stephenie Meyer nor her representatives had any knowledge of this writer or her supposed book prior to this claim."

Man. It was a lot more fun when the only breaking news about these movies/books involved the latest Robert Pattinson pictures.

DANNNGGG, YOU ALL GOTTA CALM DOWN, TAKE CHILL PILL. we all know that whoever this scott person is, does not know what she is talking about. Stephanie started writing how long ago and Scott started when and her little website doesn't give shit information. i agree with a lot of you she is just mad cause Stephanie is a damn good writer and got all the fame. oh and twilight does not have horses and in twilight the vampires don't go off and find out about their powers. they already know so i would really like to see how this Scott writer is comparing her books, oh and most damn books have scene of sex, main characters loved one dieing. we all know the books will go on but this Scott person should take up another career.

Ciara Diana - FindMr.Mango WTF???? NEED by Carrie Jones was published just this year and copyrighted in March of 2009. How could she have copied it? Did Carrie Jones also post chapters of her book online for Steph to steal from?

She's not Ridley Scott's daugher. Her IMDb is the second Jordan Scott(II), not the first one. Her book is now available in paperback, only getting truly published now that she's sure to sell her books. Previously, she was self published in 2006. She is using this to sell books. Her attorney is quoted in early August as saying "Twilight fans will have to read Ms. Scott's book to decide for themselves." She doesn't do the MTV interview until a day or so after her book is available again. She has succeeded in getting what she likely wanted all along. I doubt much more effort is put forth in persuing this issue, lest she want to be sued herself. So sad that greed can make people lie, steal and cheat. She's a hoax and she knows it. Oh...and her twitter page...began on August 2nd..and she tweets about writing...like that is what she always does. She says it took her 3 years to finish the Nocturne (2003 - 2006). If she's such a serious writer...where is the rest of this trilogy?

To me, it really does sound like Scott just wants to cash in on the whole Twilight franchise. Breaking Dawn has been out for over a year now so why does she file suits now? Especially since the first of the saga was already turned into a movie and the second and third are in the works? And the whole thing about the wedding, sex after the marriage, a c section, and blood being coughed out not usually found in a vampire genre, what exactly do you find in a vampire genre? So vampires and werewolves can't fall in love and conceive a child like what happened in Underworld: Rise of the Lycans? They can't have sherriffs and monarchs and invent fake blood like in True Blood? Its fiction, meaning that you can write it the way you want it to be like. It just all seems a bit fishy to me. That's all I'm going to say

I haven't read the other book so I can't say forsure,but I do belive that jordan scotts law suit is a bunch of bulls*@t. Almost all vampire books and movies have the same basic themes,And I will not read the other book just to confirm that her law suit is bull,that will only make jordan scott money so she still wins even when her law suites dismissed. And secondly I do belive that book publishers pay people very well to look into these exact claim's before they publish the author!

Twilight is for pre-pubescent junior high girls... Basically, the female nerd equivalent. Like, OMG, he's ummm, a vampire, and like, so cute! Bwahaha, this is just one sad chapter in your life that you will forget or laugh about when you're spitting babies out and hoping your husband stops drinking long enough to get a job.
